Delivering Tomorrow’s Treatments Today

In this new era of targeted therapies, the role of clinical trials is more important than ever in providing patients with access to promising new therapies and advancing our knowledge through cutting edge research.

Compass Oncology is a leading referral source for cancer specific clinical trials in our region. At any given time, we have more than 50 active trials.

60 FDA-APPROVED THERAPIES

As an affiliate of The US Oncology Network, one of the nation’s largest networks of integrated community-based oncology practices, we participate in clinical trials through US Oncology Research specializing exclusively in oncology clinical trials. Compass physicians are among nearly 900 experienced investigators nationwide united with US Oncology Research in the development of new and novel therapies. Together we have played a role in more than 60 FDA-approved cancer therapies, about one-third of all cancer therapies approved by the FDA to date.

Continuing to provide our community with access to promising new therapies which may become tomorrow’s gold standard remains a top priority at Compass.
